All drive, transport, and marker hub wheel bearings should be repacked annually and checked for wear.

1. Raise wheel off ground.

2. Check for bearing endplay by moving wheel side to side.

3. Rotate wheel to check for bearing roughness. If bearings sound rough, remove hub and inspect bearings.

NOTE: To repack wheel hubs, follow procedure outlined for wheel bearing replacement except bearings and
bearing cups are reused.

Clean fitting thoroughly before using grease gun. Frequency of lubrication recommended is based on normal operating
